MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN DUPAGE AND WILL COUNTY, ONE CLIENT AT A TIME

Accidents happen—even in Naperville, Woodridge, and the surrounding Chicago suburbs. Distracted drivers run red lights and strike other vehicles and pedestrians. Truck drivers merge into lanes on interstates like I-355 without looking, crushing the passenger cars next to them. Impatient drivers speeding through sleepy suburban towns like Lisle crash into bicyclists and runners.

From our experience, many parties involved in these Naperville accidents sustain serious and life-altering injuries that require surgery and months of physical therapy.

You’ve seen these stories in your local newspapers and TV stations before. But you never expect it to happen to you.

Until it does.

You deserve to have the best personal injury lawyers in the Naperville area on your side. For over a decade, our accident attorneys at Shannon Law Group have been making a difference in the lives of real people like you from our Woodridge office on Hobson Road near Route 53.

We’re dedicated to helping injured victims and their families recover financially and emotionally after a traumatizing event like a truck accident or wrongful death. We’re not afraid to go toe-to-toe with big insurance companies and their army of lawyers in the courtroom. Our record-breaking results and reviews speak for themselves. Attorneys Joe Shannon and Jack Cannon secured the largest verdict in Will County history.

The truth is, the other party will have an army of defense lawyers preparing their case. You also deserve to have a team of compassionate and driven attorneys fighting for you and your financial future. You don’t deserve a lawyer who will settle your case for pennies on the dollar or an attorney who never returns your calls.

At Shannon Law Group, our Naperville personal injury attorneys hold themselves to high standards.

  • We won’t settle your case for less than what it’s worth.
  • If the other side refuses to compensate you fairly, we will try your case and let a jury decide how much compensation you are owed.

I used Shannon Law Group to help me with a legal name change. I worked with attorney Pat Cummings who represented me in DuPage County courthouse for the procedure. I am very pleased that they filed my case very quickly, and we got in front of the judge and the case went flawlessly, and my request was granted (just before the courthouse shut down). I can't say enough that the whole process went very well and very fast and was handled most professionally by everyone I spoke to in the law firm staff. Great work, thank you!

My wife is represented by Shannon Law Group. In my opinion, Jack Cannon is one of the best attorneys in the business. He is very knowledgeable, communicates well and extremely helpful. Jack cares about his clients. He completely explains the situation with relevancy and clarity in this challenging time. Jack stays in contact with updates even on weekends. I feel the Shannon Law Group puts their clients first and fights hard with their best interest in mind. I have recommended Jack to several people who are also very pleased. Jack Cannon and Shannon Law Group get the job done.

I have had the good fortune of getting to know Joe Shannon through our involvement in a law firm owner group. In short, with Joe, what you see is what you get. Joe's word is his bond. He has an unwavering commitment to his faith, his family and his friends. Why is that relevant to someone looking for the right attorney? Because, at the end of the day, the attorney-client relationship is about trust and commitment. With Joe and his firm, you get both, in spades.

After doing many phone interviews to decide on an attorney to represent me, Jack Cannon was by far an easy choice. Easy to talk to, professional, respectful, knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions. He promptly returns my phone calls. I'm very thankful to have him representing me.

Joe is a superb attorney but even better person. In my opinion, the most important considerations in an attorney-client relationship are trust and reliability. There is no attorney I trust more to provide a careful, thorough analysis of a legal matter and then offer thoughtful recommendations that consider the “big picture” and focus on my best interests. He is a pillar of the local community as a lawyer, philanthropist and father and is widely respected as a straight shooter who vigorously represents his clients while maintaining his civility.

I worked with Joe Shannon for 15 years and we have maintained the friendship for another 15 years since then and I can unequivocally say he is a man of the highest integrity. He is "real", easy to talk to and sincerely interested in what you have to say. The phrase I think of most often when I remember him is that he feels "he is living the dream". This humble expression applies not only to his passion for his law firm and clients, but also his passion and loyalty to his family and his faith. He is the real deal.

Patrick Cummings and Shannon Law Group represented our daughter in an employment contract dispute. Our daughter was so frustrated, and Patrick immediately reassured her that the law was on her side despite what her employer told her. Patrick was able to get her back pay that added up to more than 10% of her annual salary. He did this professionally, respectfully and quickly. In a way that allowed her to continue in a job she loves with out creating unnecessary tension. It is fortunate that Patrick can practice in Wisconsin. We are very grateful Pat was able to help our daughter.

I was involved in a head on collision with a wrong way driver. My car was totaled and my life was saved by safety restraints. Much to my surprise, my insurance company failed to properly represent me and I engaged Joe Shannon's services to recover my losses. Joe resolved the matter in a quick and cost effective manner. I have since referred a number of other individuals to the practice and they have all had very positive experiences and outcomes with Joe's firm. Joe is also very active in supporting the local community. I would recommend him without hesitation.

Joe Shannon is an incredible lawyer backed by an amazing team. I referred a family to him and have been amazed at how his team has helped them when no other lawyers would. He isn't afraid of the tough cases - he knows how to win them. He works more than hard for his clients. He and his team build innovative strategies and execute with integrity and courage. Their approach brings results for their clients that most firms could never get. They care. They will fight for you. They are the people you want in your corner during what may be one of the most difficult challenges you face.

Should I hire a Naperville personal injury lawyer near me?

Naperville Personal Injury Lawyer ConsultationThe short answer is it depends. If you suffered only minor injuries like neck pain in a fender bender, it may not be worth hiring an attorney to handle your claim. Sometimes, you’ll end up with more money in your pocket if you DON’T hire a lawyer.

Why is that?

Personal injury attorneys only make money when they come through for you. When you sign a contract with them, you’re authorizing that they can receive an agreed percentage (or a contingency fee) of your monetary award.

So, if the insurance company offers to resolve your claim for $10,000, your lawyer will often receive between 20% and 33-1/3% of the settlement. Oftentimes, people with minor injuries resolve their claims without an attorney, which saves them money.

At Shannon Law Group, we only take cases where we know our services add value to our client’s life. Many of these lawsuits involve traumatic injuries or wrongful death as a result of commercial vehicle accidents. In these scenarios, insurance companies will make lowball offers to keep more money in their pockets. They hope you don’t hire an aggressive personal injury law firm like us—because they know we’ll fight for your family until you get what you truly deserve.

Studies conducted and published by the insurance industry show that people represented by injury attorneys often receive 3x more compensation.

If you’re uncertain whether you should hire an attorney, it doesn’t hurt to meet with one. Schedule a free consultation with the Shannon Law Group. We’ll sit down with you and discuss your options. Call us today at (312) 578-9501 to get started.

How long do I have to file a personal injury case in Illinois?

Illinois Statute of Limitations Personal InjuryIn Illinois, injured parties must file their cases before a specific deadline. This law is called the statute of limitations. If you wait too long to file a case, you may be barred from recovering compensation.

So, how much time do you have? While time limits vary, you generally have 2 years to file a personal injury lawsuit.

However, you shouldn’t wait until a few months before the deadline to contact a lawyer. Evidence supporting your case can be lost to time. Witnesses can move or pass away. Information like phone records may be unavailable.

Don’t wait to hire a personal injury attorney in the Naperville area—especially if you sustained permanent injuries.

How much compensation am I entitled to in my accident case?

Accident Case CompensationThe amount of compensation you may be owed depends on the damages of your case. In this section, we breakdown two types of damages in personal injury lawsuits: economic and non-economic damages.

ECONOMIC DAMAGES

Economic damages are easy to calculate. It includes any and all monetary losses you’ve suffered because of your personal injury. They may include:

  • Past and future medical treatment expenses. This compensation includes the gross amount of your medical bills, including what your health insurance company paid. It also covers expenses like crutches or wheelchairs, as well as future medical expenses.
  • Past and future lost wages. How many hours at work have you missed from doctors’ appointments or recovery time? You deserve to recover any lost wages from being unable to go to your job. If you’re unable to return to work, you deserve to receive compensation for that loss of future earnings.
  • Property damage. If your car was damaged in an accident, you’re entitled to compensation. At Shannon Law Group, we’ll resolve your property damage claim for free when you hire us for your personal injury claim.
  • Loss of earning capacity. Let’s say you were studying to become an electrician before your injury. Now, you have to work from home due to your injury. Your wage is significantly less than what you would have earned as an electrician. You deserve to be compensated for your loss of earning capacity due to the accident.
  • Additional out-of-pocket costs. You may be compensated for any additional out-of-pocket costs related to your injury, from remodeling expenses to medical supplies ordered from Amazon.
NON-ECONOMIC DAMAGES

In Illinois personal injury cases, noneconomic damages may include losses you can’t easily calculate or measure, such as:

  • Pain and suffering. How much physical and mental pain do you endure every day as a result of your injury? This loss also includes the pain you’ve experienced or the depression you’ve endured since the impact of the crash. As attorneys, it’s our job to provide convey the amount of pain and suffering you experience daily to a jury panel. We show them footage of a grueling physical therapy session or the crutches you hobbled on for a year. A jury may award damages for hundreds or thousands of painful moments you may experience in the future.
  • Loss of a normal life. This type of compensation is defined as “the temporary or permanent diminished ability to enjoy life.” Many people with serious injuries are no longer able to do hobbies that they enjoyed, such as hiking, playing sports, or walking the dog. That’s a huge loss for some folks, and a jury may award them for that loss.
  • If you experienced permanent scarring or disfigurement from an accident, you may receive compensation for that as well.
  • Punitive damages. These damages are awarded by a jury to punish the defendants for their egregious conduct and deter other corporations from behaving that way in the future. Currently, there is no cap on punitive damages in Illinois.
